Individual Counselling for Adults and Adolescents
I am an experienced Client Centred Counsellor working with adults and young people (age 15 plus) from my practice in Ealing W13
I have over 16 years experience of working with people from all walks of life including teachers, students, GP's , stay at home parents, city workers, manual workers and long term unemployed.
In addition to my private practice I also work in schools and have previously worked for the NHS.
You may be seeking counselling because you are feeling bereaved, anxious, depressed , stressed or confused . It might be that you are looking for a space to reflect on your life choices such as your job or a relationship or you may be feeling a general unhappiness.
Whatever is troubling you I offer a professional and honest relationship and use my experience to work with you to understand any difficult thoughts and feelings you are experiencing including those linked to the past.
I have a particular interest in working with women who have problematic relationships with their mothers which may be causing issues such as low self esteem , depression or unmanageable anger
Before training as a counsellor I had my own experience of being a client and not knowing what to expect but knowing I couldn't carry on as I was therefore I know how it feels to be sitting in both chairs.
I also know how important it is finding a counsellor you can trust as this helps you feel safe to share things that you might have previously kept hidden not just from others but also from yourself.
Here is a list of some of the issues I work with.
BEREAVEMENT AND LOSS
LOW SELF ESTEEM
LIFE TRANSITIONS ( going to uni, empty nest syndrome, ageing, divorce, retirement etc)
SCHOOL , COLLEGE/ UNIVERSITY ISSUES
GENERAL DISSATISFACTION WITH LIFE
please do not be put off if your issue is not listed it is just a few examples of what previous clients have brought to counselling .
I offer a 60 minute informal assessment session which costs £50 .
There is no obligation for you to continue after the assessment session . It gives us an opportunity to decide together if what I offer is going to be of help to you and for you to ask any questions you might have.
Please email or phone on the number provided so we can book a mutually convenient time to meet.
